The Best Hand Dryers 2019

The time has come where we review our top picks for the best hand dryers throughout the year. There is no doubt about it, that paper towels are extremely wasteful and damaging to the environment. If you own a café, or a busy restaurant, or even an office, you will have different needs and requirements. However, the one thing that remains the same is the end goal – which is? To have or use a hand dryer that dries hands quickly and efficiently without using too much energy.

One important thing to note when you’re looking to purchase a hand dryer is that you should look at the specifications properly and not just pin your hopes on a high wattage dryer. We strongly recommend that you look for a low wattage hand dryer as your first point of call, secondly, you should look at airspeed.

Choosing A Hand Dryer

Many people assume that because a hand dryer is 550w that it is slow and ineffective compared to a 2kw or 2000w dryer. And here at Blow Motion, we can say without absolute certainty that it isn’t the case. Dryers that blow hot air are very slow, which is why it often results in people becoming impatient and drying hands on clothes instead because it’s simply quicker. Remember that the high wattage is due to the very hot air being blown out. It is because the motor power is poor, the air being blown is ridiculously slow so they have to have an energy-guzzling heating element and the hot air evaporates the water from your hands as opposed to it being blasted off with the air flow!

There are many models and designs of hand dryers in the market today that do a remarkable job when it comes to drying hands, but is there one dryer that meets all demands? Is there a design that is quick, efficient, hygienic AND affordable? We believe so, and a few are included in our best hand dryers roundup which you can see below. Are you ready to be blown away?

The Best Hand Dryers To Buy

1.Ninja Jet Blade Hand Dryer (with HEPA Filter)

It’s called the Ninja for a reason – it’s outstanding performance in demanding environments, it’s efficiency, hygiene, and durability. It’s one of the best sellers in our range, and we’re not surprised why. This design features many technological advances over the standard traditional type dryers. As soon as your hands are in the drying zone, an LED countdown timer will begin whilst air will be blasted onto the front and back of your hands, at the same time.

Another incredible feature this hand dryer possesses is the fact it is able to sense the room temperature and then display this on it’s LED panel. If the temperature of a room is extremely low, the Ninja will cleverly increase the temperature of the airflow. This saves energy on an enormous amount; it can dry 100 pairs of hands for an estimated 2p in electricity usage.

It holds an internal filter that is able to stop and reduce small airborne particles from entering the dryer, which ultimately means it has a long life expectancy.
